Acer is rolling out some interesting devices at CES 2020 that will land later this year. One of the products is the ConceptD 7 Ezel convertible notebook aimed at creative professionals. Acer says that the laptop is designed to allow creators to make and share ideas with a color-accurate 4K UHD touch screen display that swivels and rotates in any of five usage modes. The machine is "ideal" for heavy workflows, says Acer, and features up to a 10th Gen Intel Core H-Series processor, the latest NVIDIA GPUs, 15.6-inch screen, up to 32GB of RAM, and up to 2TB NVMe PCIe SSDs.
Acer is also offering a ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro with a Xeon processor, up to an NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 GPU, ECC memory, 15.6-inch screen, and Windows 10 Pro for those needing more power. The standard Ezel notebook will land in June, starting at $2,699, with the Pro landing in July starting at $3,099. Both will be available in North America.
The ConceptD 700 workstation uses up to Intel Xeon E processors and up to NVIDIA Quadro RTX 4000 graphics. Acer is aiming the machine at filmmakers, animators, and designers in the architecture/engineering/construction industries. The desktop is designed to be quiet, producing only 40 dBA. The machine has an attractive, Scandinavian-inspired design aesthetic with a white finish, woodgrain-inspired top, and smooth rounded corners.
For enthusiasts, Acer has a line of three new gaming monitors that includes the Predator X32 gaming monitor that supports NVIDIA G-SYNC Ultimate, VESA DisplayHDR 1400 certification, 1440 nit brightness, and 89.5% Rec2020.
